I think you do need to keep open to the possibility it's the "ghosts" of people who are still alive. Perhaps former residents of the house who
still feel an emotional attachment and perhaps do not feel their current residence is as much "home" as your house is.
Apparently I somehow "haunt" the home I grew up in and lived in off and on though my 30's to the point nobody feels comfortable sleeping in my old
bedroom. I once was napping at the house I bought after my wedding, and had a dream where I appeared in the old room and was seen there in semi
transparent form. I saw the person who was seeing me. Our eyes met, she asked me what was wrong, because I was frowning. When I awoke, we talked on
the phone and our stories of our encounter matched up perfectly, with me remembering I was asked what was wrong.
I still have odd dreams where I wake up in the middle of the night disoriented in my old bedroom, and I'm confused because its decorated differently,
I'm flailing at the door trying to leave, then I wake up in my current bedroom very confused. I had a bout of that dream recurring constantly awhile
back, and coincidently I learned my mom was trying to sleep in that old room around that time but gave up on it because she said something kept
disturbing her sleep, some presence. I now think it was me, in OOBE form, but of course I can't prove it. If I was visible, there was no light, so
I was not visible or identifiable as I was during the other "encounter" during the daytime.
All this seems to reach a peak when I have issues with my current and past houses, where I don't feel at home in them for various reasons, and long
for a house that truly feel like home.
I think incidents where people encounter a ghost type presence in their brand new homes, with no history of hauntings, and never experience another
incident, may also be examples of people encountering someone wandering about on an OOBE in which they are visible. I've read such stories in ATS,
and to me, it's a possibility that makes sense. These are encounters with ghosts that are dressed in current fashions, seen only once, maybe twice,
and there are no murders or anything else to explain a more traditional haunting.
I apologize if this post is hard to read. I've got drops in my eyes for conjunctivitis and it's a bit blurry.
